Hi, I’m James

I’m a guy with a passion for animals, who tries to stay in shape by running and cycling. I design and build things online to pay the bills. You’ll find a lot of somewhat mundane personal stuff within the writing entrails on this site. I’ve been known to have the odd opinion on political and social things, too.

I design and build web things

I’m an in-house interaction designer, developer and project lead. My design work focuses primarily on quality end user experiences, while I often build things with WordPress. In other words, I can take a digital product from needs assessment through launch.

A small portfolio site may be coming some day.

I write a journal »

Recently, I’ve begun to focus seriously on the issue of personal change, primarily with regard to philosophical matters and improving thought process and decision-making. In particular, the following quote by Hunter S. Thompson crystallized the way I’d been thinking for some time:

Decide how you want to live and then see what you can do to make a living within that way of life. A man who procrastinates in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance.

So, I’m analyzing pretty much everything, reading daily, and trying to write about it all a little more.
